Eco label and philosophy
Our campsite has the Eco-label Bronze certification. The eco-label is a hallmark if a company is seen as sustainable. In this way we contribute to a sustainable future and the certification is the crowning glory. The EcoLabel is a Luxembourg label that certifies environmentally friendly accommodation establishments. More information about the label and its criteria can be found at www.ecolabel.lu.
We are very happy with the result. It's nice to see this path we started together years ago, with us and our staff. In addition, it is also important to stay alert and continue to take steps to make even more sustainable (and unforgettable) holidays possible.
Since we took over the campsite, we attach great importance to the protection of the environment. That is why we are committed to responsible management of the impact on the environment and to offer you the most pleasant stay possible.
For this reason:
- • Are we alert and actively working with our staff and guests for responsible waste separation and recycling;
- • We have installed savings on water taps to reduce our water consumption;
- • We offer various regional, organic and fair trade products in the shop and in our restaurant;
- • We have opted for eco-label cleaning products and packaging from 100% recycled bottles;
- • We use eco-label detergent and dishwasher detergent;
- • We offer a pick-up option from the train station in Wilwerwiltz to promote use of public transport;
- • We have installed a solar system to produce hot water for our sanitary facilities;
- • Let's replace every light bulb that breaks with LED bulbs;
- • We planted new native tree species in March 2022, in consultation with the municipality and Naturpark Our.
We want to expand our environmental actions, in particular by installing a waste system that compresses waste and thus reduces it. We also want to replace old dead trees with native species.
We also want to make available various hiking maps from the region (other than no. 5 from our region).
Thank you for supporting us in our commitment to the environment and climate.
